Maudite Glass: Nice golden/orange color. Pillowy,lasting,head. Big hop aroma(pine,citric),with dry bready malt slightly showing.Creamy,with nice texture. Mouth load of pine,spicy,hops and underlying malt. Finish is more pine and spicy,hops with bread. Leaves a very satisfying green,fresh hop linger. Shame the glass empties. Put together well and tasty IMO.

Wow. The fresh hops are stunning in this brew. Very grassy nose to it when poured.

Tap. Juicy, juicy, juicy! Pours straw color with a nice head. Nose is all citrus. Flavor is also great citrus. I can’t wait for hop harvest again.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a bottle. Cloudy golden orange with offwhite head. Aroma is caramel malt and bread accompanied by citrusy (orange) hops. Nice bright, juicy hops in the taste with a healthy dose of caramel malt to balance. Finish is clean and bitter. Slick and oily mouthfeel with nice crisp carbonation. Overall, I enjoyed this beer, but perhaps a bit maltier than I prefer.

@ Chief Market / Lima OH --- Hazy orange amber with a head that drops to 1/2", thin streaks of lace. Taste is light malt infused with citrus, especially orange, with the citrus turning hoppy at the end of the palate. It all moves very smoothly to a long lingering finish. In many ways, typical of the hoppy Founders offerings, but the orange-lemon makes it unique and enjoyable. A real winner.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Reviewed from notes. Consumed fresh during its seasonal release.
The appearance had a beautiful light golden yellow colored body that gives a nice one finger white foamy head that lasts for a good minute before gently dieing into the body. Some nice spotty spiderweb lacing appears around the sides of the pint glass.
The smell had a sweet citric fruit up front backed up nicely by some piney hops.
The taste takes these flavors and combine a wet/fresh taste.
On the palate, it sat at/about a medium on the palate with nothing sharp on the tongue, very sessionable.
Overall, once again, another Founders beer that impressed me.
